“Special Thanks”

Jae Hyeon An loves memorizing Scripture. A few years ago he found our Scripture Singer app and offered to help with its development. A year ago, recognizing the app needed updating, he boldly offered to completely rebuild the Scripture Singer app. Over the past year, Jae has spent countless hours programming, testing, and rebuilding our app while interacting with our Scripture Singer team. The amazing thing is that none of our team have ever had the privilege of meeting Jae! Join us in welcoming him as he travels from New York City to meet the Scripture Singer family at our Filming Retreat at 3ABN in July!

3ABN Interview

In January, Scripture Singer was featured in a “3ABN Today” program with the LaVerde family. We thank you and your family for sharing your Scripture Singer experience!

You can enjoy seeing that program by clicking the link below:


New Filming

The Shear Family hosted our Scripture Singer/3ABN Canada crew on their property as we geared up for our filming in July. We hope to share their songs on our YouTube channel soon!

New Books of the Bible to Music

David Gomez is a young man who grew up near Windsor, Ontario—with a family network of scripture memory enthusiasts. He has the entire book of Hebrews and Daniel memorized in song! These books were put to music by various family and friends, but he has agreed to spend this summer recording and editing so that these new books of the Bible can be added to the app! Please consider donating to make this possible and also pray for David as he works on this important project!



I have been listening for some years to Scripture Singer. It has improved my hours of meditation. Also it has inspired me in making my own scripture songs. What I love the most in my experience with the app is that I can exercise with listening to the songs! In the morning for certain duties the songs just naturally come to mind and I talk with God about them. The promises of God in song are wonderful for our experience. Thank you for fulfilling the command to share the word in song. We need more of it! (May, 2024)

October 6, 2023 Newsletter

In the past two years our team of volunteers has bean very busy in different ministries, but, in the past few weeks Scripture Singer has come back to front-and-center for many of us! Here is what is going on:

Complete App Rebuild

At the moment, our biggest regret is that our Scripture Singer app has a serious bug. As some of you may have noticed, If you click on the “Songs” icon on the opening page, which takes you to the “All” tab and in that tab if you tap on “Sing” for any of the songs or open a song and press the play button, the app will crash. The ironic thing is that EVERY other function still works perfectly. So, to use the app, please just choose any other selection, such as, “Playlists,” “Top Songs,” or “Books.”

The best news is that we have a volunteer, Jae Hyeon An, who is a professional app developer—who found our app, appreciates it, and is volunteering his time to rebuild it completely—THANK YOU, Jae! What a huge gift of time and talent! Praise God! Jae tells us that by December 1st, the all-new Scripture Singer app will be ready for us to enjoy!

In the new app our Music Videos will play right in the app! Also, the new app will allow us to give PUSH NOTIFICATIONS so that if we need to inform all of our users of any new exciting feature or event—we can do it!

Incidentally, since January 1, 2023 over 5000 Apple users have downloaded the Scripture Singer app and used it an average of 4 times a day. Over 2300 Android users are also active on the app. Praise God!

New Songs

We are excited to tell you that the entire book of Matthew is ready for the new app release! This addition to the app is so HUGE –it’s hard to picture– but try this: it is 28 chapters, a total run-time of 5 hours, 24 minutes, and 28 seconds! This entire Gospel of Matthew has more than DOUBLED the entire run-time of our app!

For those of you who have already memorized the first 8 chapters of Matthew and you are up to the CHALLENGE to put the entire Gospel of Mathew to memory, let us know and we will send you more! After all who could wait for December 1st!

Craig & Dawna have been very blessed to be involved in editing those chapters—just think what having the entire book memorized will be like! Please take up that challenge! All you’ve got to do is LISTEN!

Scores of other NEW songs that have been recorded with various groups of young people will also be on the new app. Just last week we received a new composition by Ethan Caputto of Psalm 18:1 & 34:8. Ethan and his younger brother are pictured here below with two of our Scripture Singer Volunteers: Jennifer Landis and Roper Karges. Keep an eye on the app, as this composition should be out early in the new year.

Website Updates

Jason Strack is busy building a search option on our website so that finding any song will be easy. He is also fixing all the lists so that they appear in the correct order, plus he is helping the rest of our team load lots of new songs on our app. Thank you , Jason!

3ABN Praise Him Now Program

Jennifer Landis represented us and aired some of our Scripture Singer Music Videos in a program she interviewed with her sister, recently. Please enjoy the program here, if you have not seen it already (the 1st half of the program deals with Scripture Singer):

To the Future

With the audio recording and editing of the Gospel of Matthew project complete, our focus now is publishing sheet music. More and more requests come in for sheet music. Accompaniment tracks are also in demand and we want to have those available also. We will also be loading the Biblical text (lyrics) on YouTube so they can be read as the audio for each song plays. Having our songs on YouTube will reach a far wider audience and we believe it will also drive up use of our app, Next we plan to push into promoting the app in several ways, from simple grassroots e-mail blitzes to SDA churches, all the way to exciting social media ads.

You Can Help!

Every song recorded and edited is more of God’s Holy Word ready to be heard by thousands of users all over the world. These songs hold supernatural, divine power. They are our best weapon against temptation—used as Jesus used them they are the most powerful words: IT IS WRITTEN! Recording and editing one chapter of Matthew for the app cost us an average of $400 per chapter. Short songs are usually $50 each. If you feel impressed to keep this app growing—we praise God for your support!

Music Filming Project

We are so excited to share about our filming project that took place only a few weeks ago! A select group of singers and instrumentalists from across the United States and Canada traveled to northern Washington to film 14 scripture songs and Scripture song medleys, and to plan the near future of Scripture Singer!

Filming in beautiful locations around Washington was wonderful for all of us as we sang our favorite Scriptures that have impacted our lives so much! All of the videos are currently being edited and we are so excited to share them with you! Watch for more updates right here on our website.
